5 Ways To Be More Patient With Your Children During a Portrait Session

5 Ways To Be More Patient With Your Children During a Portrait Session

A portrait session tends to be incredibly stressful for parents, especially for Moms who understandably want things to go well (I’m trying really hard not to say “perfectly”, but it often does seem that way!). And when stress levels are high, paired with solid expectations of good behavior, finding patience when dealing with your children can be really hard…

3 Alternatives to the "Baby Book"

3 Alternatives to the "Baby Book"

The “Baby Book” is one of those things we all feel we should create for our babies. The first child usually at least gets an attempt at the baby book.
